Built on top of the classic drum intro from “Hihache” by Lafayette Afro Rock Band, this mid-tempo production which featured Chuckii Booker handling the production duties, stayed in constant rotation for me in early ’94.

The appeal? An infectious groove, multi-layered background vocals which make extensive use of doubling in octaves, a synth line that is an attention grabber in the intro and equally important throughout the production, tasty guitar and of course Ms. Angela herself in all her multi-register goodness.

Angela Winbush always puts on a clinic with her singing because she reminds that there are a whole lot of notes in the upper register that can be utilized but the only way to get to them and still be able to sing for decades is through proper technique.
